Indoorswomen - Episode 55 - One Chris to Rule Them All

Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pine, Chris Pratt... Who is the #1 Chris?

Join us for The Great Chris-Off! It's the least objective examination of which semi-interchangeable white actor named Chris is Best Chris. We pit the Chrises against one another in a head-to-head, bicep-to-bicep competition.

Listen to find out who we crowned the King of Chrises.

We also chat about a few Chris-free recommendations: Santa Clarita Diet, Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, and Love, Simon.

Our intro/outro music is "We are Highscore" by Krackatoa.

In this episode, we kick off with our annual tradition: some spoooooky scenarios for your Halloween pleasure. Then, we talk zombies: both speedsters and shamblers, both lacking and retaining humanity, both hilarious and scary. The discussion features (relatively) spoiler-free discussion of 28 Days Later, Zombieland, The Walking Dead, iZombie, and others. Bonus: some history of the zombie concept! Never say we didn’t teach you anything.

Tweet your favorite zombie culture to @Indoorswomen to join the conversation!

Lastly, we wrap up with random recommendations: This week they are:

The HBO documentary “Spielberg” - a must see for fans of the movies or the man.

Original Show Notes:

Hi everyone! Today we have some new excitingness for you! We introduce a segment called “Strength of Character” where we discuss our favorite characters from any medium or genre and explain why we love them. Our definition of “strength” is not “most kickass” nor even “most likeable”. Instead, we want to identify those characters that keep us coming back to the same shows, films, and books over and over and what makes them so intriguing.  First nominees: Capt. John Yossarian and Lorelai Gilmore. How’s that for variety?

Next up, we discuss retrofuturism! Flying cars, floating homes, robot butlers, and nuclear powered everything. Why were these tropes so popular? What are our favorite pop culture representations? We wrestle with the complicated concepts of viewing the future from the past, viewing the past from the future, and viewing both simultaneously from the present. We also discover we both experience nostalgia for a future that never came to pass with our discussion of Tomorrowland. Plus, discussions of classic and modern science fiction and visits to the World’s Fair and colonies on Mars.

Last, we have our random recommendations, wherein Meg chats about her long-term love of Project Runway and Jen discusses her newly minted passion for Bob’s Burgers.

As always, our intro/outro music is “We are Highscore” by Krackatoa.

Thanks for listening!

This is (our) Halloween (Spooktacular)!
